Modern Mississauga presents Ask The City - Who is eligible for the driveway clearing assistance program this winter in Mississauga?

Modern Mississauga and the City of Mississauga have come together to present an ongoing series called “Ask the City.” We’ll share relevant information here and answer your questions about our city.
Today’s question is about snow clearing in Mississauga

I’ve heard the City provides driveway clearing assistance in the winter - who is eligible for this program?


The City of Mississauga offers a Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program from December 2, 2019 to March 27, 2020. This program helps residents by clearing the snow that can accumulate at the end of their driveway after their street has been plowed.

To qualify for the program, you must be a resident of Mississauga and 65 years or older or living with a physical disability.

The program is not available if you live on a private road or in a high-rise, multi-unit building, condo or for commercial properties. The program is also not available to anyone who has an able-bodied person living at the same residence where windrow clearing assistance is required.

The cost of the program is $200. If you meet the financial assistance criteria, the program is offered at no cost.

You can apply for the program in person at any community centre, the Mississauga Seniors’ Centre or the Recreation Customer Service Centre at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre.

Bring your completed application form as well as the necessary documentation to show proof of residency, age, physical disability and financial need.

Applications will be accepted until Friday, November 8, 2019.

To learn more about the City’s Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program, visit or call 311 (905-615-4311 from outside city limits), Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
